“Fast service food good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Went on a Saturday afternoon about 4ish was busy , the menu has a lot to choose from. Ordered food was told will be 10 mins and it was roughly that , food was cooked well and served hot the plates were almost to hot to touch. They forgot to serve coleslaw which was on menu description so had to go ask for it. And the kids meal was delivered on a very hot plate had to ask for a cooler one so children didn't get burnt ! Other than that was good, fast and value for money would return

“Bad.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

The time it took to be seated and served was brilliant but all that followed is why. The staff were lovely, friendly and accommodating however, the food was terrible. My vegetables came half in the plastic bag (from the microwave) and half on the plate. Speechless! And unusually amusing! Bleurgh. I know that wetherspoons are classically trained in the art of the microwave but this takes the biscuit. Would have been a pleasant trip if the centre piece (the food) which we came to enjoy was decent. Cold, hard, reconstituted crud. Went to tesco to fill up on magnums.....did the job.

“excellent food and quick service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Been to this restaurant twice now and both times it was fantastic on my first visit I ordered the club sandwhich I think they said 20-25 minutes for us to get the food and it took about 10-15 minutes very quick especially as it was busy and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal the second visit was 2 days ago and I ordered the large mixed grill again service was fairly quick and every part of the meal was perfectly cooked my steak was nice and pink in the middle just how I like it and everything just tasted brilliant can't wait to visit again

“Good Value”

Food on special deal was good and the menu is clear about special dietary needs, in addition there is a flexible approach to adapt and change menu items. Altogether an enjoyable lunch with friends.
